Two things Martin and I want to point out regarding the upcoming  
Smalltalk Superpowers Workshop at OOPSLA 2008 this year.

1) Some have expressed concern that this is held the same day as the  
Lisp 50th Birthday Party. With this workshop, we intend to do one of  
the things that Smalltalk does best. We intend to be dynamic, we  
intend to be late bound. Past the method preamble of the workshop, we  
will dynamically compile the agenda for the workshop, and if there's  
consensus about taking time to run over and see one of the more  
notable portions of the Celebration of the Life of Lisp, that's  
certainly possible. So please don't let that deter a desire to  

2) We've received some emails from people who are unable to attend  
OOPSLA, but feel they have an example or two to contribute to the  
subject of Smalltalk Superpowers and their Uses for Good or Evil.  
Please feel free to send those to the link at http://smalltalk-superpowers.org/ 
  indicating your absence, and we'll do our best to present the ideas  
and include them in the discussions.
